    No.
    You can create a standalone exe using programming languages such as VB, C++, ect... which can in turn create an Excel object. Just curious. Why do you need an exe?

    I don't know the inner workings of server side apps, but I have gone to many a site which opens an Excel workbook on my computer.
    The only requirement should be that your people all have Office or atleast a viewer on their individual systems.

    Hi jkpd2000:
    Some time ago, a number of compilers for spreadsheets were available -- some of the names that come to mind are Baler, King Jaguar, ...
    I am going back to the days when Lotus 123 was the king of the spreadsheets -- and the compilers were available first for DOS version of Lotus 123, and later Windows version of Lotus 123 as well as Excel.
    You may want to do a search with key words like compiler, spreadsheet, ...

    Regards!

    Let me put it in another way.

    I have developed an application using excel , no need to make it exe file.

    i would like to run through from web who ever clicks it.

    of course the people should be having MS Office on their systems.

    Is it possible?

    Yes! Just put it on the server -- you may want to provide for a hyperlink or a button for the user to click on. Your spreadsheet will have almost all, if not all the functionality of a worksheet on a user's local machine -- so you may want to confirm that the particular functionality you are after is preserved.

    Regards!
